Tyler George

No summer blockbuster film is complete without an all-star cameo appearance. So we’ve cast our very own curling celebrity to add to the marquee. The Hangover had Mike Tyson and his tiger… well we’ve recruited Tyler George and his tiger shirt. You may recognize him from, LIFE OF PLYS, or from his curling prowess on the national and international level. And soon the whole world may know him from his quest for Olympic glory!

And now you have a chance to “Rent a Ringer.” Yeah – you heard us. Tyler George can be your skip for the weekend. Just imagine, later this year when you are watching him compete in Fargo at the US Olympic Trials for his chance to represent the USA in Sochi next year – you can say to yourself, “yeah, he called a double raise take-out for me once in Hollywood,” or “this pressure is nothing compared to when we played in the Finals of the Hollywood Curling Summer Blockbuster Bonspiel.”

So bid on the chance to curl for a weekend with one of the best in the US. Plus you’ll be helping out Hollywood Curling in the process. Your generosity gets us one step closer to dedicated ice… and we all want that, right!? So bid often and bid high – there is only one Tyler George and he can be yours (for a weekend at least)!

We know you have some questions.

So what exactly does my winning bid get me?  

You get a world-class curler with international experience to skip your team.

Here’s a little bit about Tyler:

The auction winner will receive 3 commemorative shirts and a pitcher of beer (or Pepsi if you’re under 21).

But what if we already have a team of 4?

We will provide you a spot on another team to ensure every player receive their 3 game guaranteed. You may rotate out who plays in that spot and who plays in your official team.

I’m a free agent, what about me?

If you win, you’ll have half a team! With Tyler on board, you shouldn’t have trouble finding two more people to play with. Once you fill out your team, you can discuss how to split up the auction, if at all.

Will our shirts be those cool tiger shirts?

Probably not. Good luck finding them.

But there are 4 of us, we only get three shirts?

You’ll have the option of purchasing more.

I’m not currently signed up, what if I win and there isn’t a spot left?

If you have a full team after securing Tyler, we’ll have a spot for you. Remember, you’re entrance fee is separate of your winning auction bid.

If you’re a single curler and win the auction, we can team you up with our free-agent curlers, however, we cannot guarantee they will be willing and able to pitch in to cover your winning bid. You will have control on how you distribute your t-shirts and beer.

So, my entrance fee is separate from winning this auction?

Yes, the auction is simply to Rent-A-Ringer for your team. Each player will need to pay $105 in addition to the winning auction payment.

I have more questions!

You can email us, tweet us @hollywoodcurl, or find us on Facebook.

****UPDATE: The winning bidder will receive a official Team Tiger shirts as worn by Tyler and his nationals team earlier this year in Green Bay. Get your bid in before it's too late!
